$405.00


  • Q: Cobb   08 Wrx 2 years ago

    I installed a bigger turbo a up pipe, down pipe, and a blow off valve. I got a Cobb Accessport and tuned it. Now I got a cold air intake and I’m wondering if I have to run it and then tune it or how to tell the Accessport that I changed it

      A:  If you got a pro tune in the past, adding the intake you would want a new tune. You could use one of their SF + maps with this intake, but not with your previous tune.

  • Q: 2017 WRX Cobb Access port and big SF intake causing turbo chatter  Damon Richards 3 years ago

    I’ve had the intake and big sf tune on my car for about a month. And the other day when I got on high boost it sounded like the turbo started to chatter. Don’t really see a loss in any power but it hasn’t stopped since. Usually starts around 10-12 psi. And it definitely sounds like it’s coming from the turbo/intake

      A:  I'm guessing what you are hearing is a bit of turbo surge, but hard to say for sure. Could you describe what you're hearing a bit more?

  • Q: Carb legal sticker  Chris3 years ago

    Prob a dumb question, but oh well... Where's the best location to place the carb legal sticker? My friend said his came off after placing it on the airbox and placed the replacement sticker on the underside of the hood.
    • 0 of 0 people found the following answer helpful

      A:  Place the sticker somewhere that doesn't have extreme heat, and make sure to fully prep and clean the area with alcohol or a glass cleaner spray that doesn't have any additives that will prevent it from staying stuck.

  • Q: 2017 wrx cobb intake swap to 2018 wrx  jconnelly20033 years ago

    I have a 2017 wrx cobb intake and now have a 2018 wrx will it fit on the new car?
    • 0 of 0 people found the following answer helpful

      A:  This one will not work with your car. But if you have a 2015+WRX COBB SF intake it will work with any 2015+ WRX.

  • Q: Big sf intake and air box   RallyRex3 years ago

    Am I going to have problems if if don’t install the air box? Like if I only install the intake itself and leave the air box out? Is there going to be any change in performance ?
    • 0 of 0 people found the following answer helpful

      A:  The airbox will lower IATs and is a great option for vehicles in hotter climates or that are run hard for long periods of time. That said, on most EJ models, Cobb does not necessarily require it to be used for their OTS tunes. 15+ WRX models tend to be more particular though.

  • Q: Rod knock  Trent3 years ago

    Just recently completed stage 1 for my 2017 wrx a couple days ago with big sf intake and accessport and reflashed with high wastegate pressure. My engine today started is what sounds like rod knock. I pushed it pretty hard today. Was wondering if this could be the cause of my engine failing in a sense? No check engine light
    • 0 of 0 people found the following answer helpful

      A:  I am not sure, there are a lot of different factors that could cause knock. I would recommend checking with your tuner or mechanic if you believe youre experiencing knock.

  • Q: Peak boost  Jbaek4 years ago

    After installing the sf intake and installing the stage 1+ tune. What should the peak boost be? 20 psi? I been only getting 15 psi. I have tighten the clamp more. Also I have a brand new 18 wrx with 4k miles.
    • 0 of 0 people found the following answer helpful

      A:  Stage 1+ on the 18 WRX should have peak boost around 19 psi, tapering down to around 17 psi at redline. If you are not hitting close to these numbers, I would suggest doing a boost leak test first. You would also be able to load Cobb's "Stage 1+ High Wastegate" map, which is meant for cars that are underboosting.

  • Q: Sound with intake  Jdaute24 years ago

    I’m about to install the Cobb SF intake and air box on my 2018 STI. Just curious, how’s the sound compared to the stock intake?
    • 1 of 1 people found the following answer helpful

      A:  It can vary depending on your setup, but as a general rule, and aftermarket intake will give you more turbo spool and engine sound from your STI. I would recommend checking Youtube for sound clips of this intake to see if it's what you're looking for.

  • Q: Gas Milage   Zach Ericson9 years ago

    How does this affect the gas mileage you get?? Better or worse
    • 0 of 0 people found the following answer helpful

      A:  No mileage testing has been done with this. Paired with the required tune it is likely to gain efficiency, but we cannot confirm fuel economy as it can greatly depend on the vehicle and setup.

      A:  I've tested both the Cobb & AEM, both are fantastic win/win products. Based on my MPG, the Cobb lost near 2mpg while the AEM gained a net of two MPG. Both tests where over ~200 miles of the same commute. FWIW, the Cobb sound is priceless.

    • 0 of 0 people found the following answer helpful

      A:  The only thing required for the intake is a custom tune or the Cobb AccessPort and nothing else is needed. Recommendations for other parts will depend on your goals for the car.

      A:  Tuning is performed on the car's computer and you can get a custom dyno tune from a professional tuner or purchase the Cobb AccessPort, which is a handheld tuner that you can use to load a premade map/tune on the computer.

  • Q: Funny Question  WRX Mike10 years ago

    theoreticly speaking the colder the air the better rite? Would there be and advantage to puting some dry ice in the bottom of the airbox?
    • 0 of 0 people found the following answer helpful

      A:  You are correct Mike. The colder the air the better. Keep in mind that the intake air is still passing through your intercooler which is going to cool the air before it enters your engine either way. I don't think I've seen anyone necessarily try to cool the intake air by the filter with ice but rather set dry ice or normal ice on your intercooler which should be more effective.

  • Q: blouch 1.5?  DanTheMan10 years ago

    Hi, i am starting to gather parts for a turbo upgrade next summer on my '12 wrx. Going with a blouch dominator 1.5xtr and the tuning shop i am going to use recommends getting an aftermarket intake to make the most out of the turbo. Would this work with the turbo upgrade? Also can the box work with the factory snorkel that sits behind the grill?
    • 0 of 0 people found the following answer helpful

      A:  Yeah this would be a perfect upgrade for your larger turbo, and could easily support even more power as well. This with the airbox will also work with the factory snorkel as well to help draw in cool air. Thanks, Rick

  • Q: FMIC Compatible  sam_munnell3528611 years ago

    Will this setup work with a front mount intercooler?
    • 0 of 0 people found the following answer helpful

      A:  I don't think it would work since most front mount kits route the piping right where the box and intake sit. I would suggest looking at the routing of the piping on the kit you are looking into to determine if there will be any fitment issues.

  • Q: what will the intake do for you?  cute_benson9614811 years ago

    I am a newbie in car mod world and i would like to ask what is the different between the stock one and this one? what does a intake really do for your car? and with this product, what does the airbox do? any different if i install the intake w/wo it? Thanks a lot
    • 0 of 0 people found the following answer helpful

      A:  Hello, the stock intake is actually pretty good. But a nice aftermarket intake will allow even less restriction, so you are bale to flow more air into the engine. With a good intake and a tune will give you more power, and will really open up the sound of the engine, so you will be able to hear the turbo and blow off valve much better as well. The airbox will help block out the warm engine air, so the intake will pick up cooler air, which will give you more power, and I think the air box looks very clean as well when installed. And you can install the intake with or without the air box, that will not affect the installation in any way.

  • Q: will i hear the stock bov and air induction over the sound of my exhaust?  dean.devito1891811 years ago

    will i be able to the the intake over my exhaust (invidia q300) and will the stock bov be heard, or would i need a better aftermarket one for a good sound? thanks
    • 1 of 1 people found the following answer helpful

      A:  You will be able to hear the intake, but it will be quieter with the air box installed. It helps to separate more of the engine heat from the intake and consequently muffles the sound. You will be able to hear more of the stock BOV, but not as much as some other aftermarket BOV's. I would wait until after the intake is installed and if the blow off noise isn't as loud as you would like, then you can always purchase an aftermarket one. :)
